The research program in biology is highly diverse, drawing its strength from interdisciplinary and collaborative faculty driven programs. Our research strengths span a wide range of topics at all levels of biological organization - from molecules to cells and organisms to ecosystems - utilizing state-of-the art experimental methodologies. Discoveries from NYUAD's biology research teams have broad implications for understanding the fundamental properties of biological systems, complex diseases, behavior, and environmental issues.
Understanding the origins and mechanisms of diseases, and advancing approaches to treating them, is a central focus of research in biology. Biomedical research at NYUAD aims to improve human health; by understanding the molecular processes and environmental factors causing disease, and developing preventive and therapeutic strategies. Research programs in biomedical research include:
